Learn how to make Wilton Cake/Treat Pops


My daughter recently bought me some Wilton Treat Pops. I can't wait until my granddaughter and I can start creating some treats in them. It's going to be so much fun.


 

If you haven't heard of cake pops or treats, and want to learn more about them and how to make them, you're in luck. A.C. Moore is having a demonstration at your local store on Saturday, April 13 from 1-3 pm.

What is a treat pop? 

A treat pop is a portable cake and icing treat assembled in a see-through container. Use the stick on the bottom of the treat pop to push the layers of cake and icing — or a sweet favorite treat and filling – up as you eat it. Types of cake for your treat pops. Begin with your favorite recipe or cake mix. 

There are three convenient ways to make circles of cake perfectly sized for your treat pop! 

Cake circles
Use the 12 in. x 18 in. x 1 in. jelly roll pan. Prepare cake batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool cake completely according to pan package directions. Cut out cake rounds using the smallest round (1 3/4 in.) cutter from 101 Cookie Cutters Set. 

Mini whoopie pies
Use the mini whoopie pie pan. Prepare whoopie pie batter following recipe directions. Bake and cool according to pan package directions. 

Mini cupcakes
 Use the mini muffin pan. Prepare batter following recipe directions. Spray mini muffin pan with Bake Easy! non-stick spray and fill cavities half full. Bake and cool following pan package directions. Use a knife to cut crowns off of mini muffins to level tops, if necessary. 

Remember to call your store to ask if they are participating prior to going for the demo.
